Indeed, Thrustburst is clean, but some heuristics algos think it is a worm or trojan.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Thanks to everyone who responded to the stroke practice question and for sharing your thoughts on that.

I've had virus scanners report false alarms sometimes as well, even on .exe files built by myself but only after I had used some executable packer/encrypter like upx. Maybe the antivirus software thinks it's malicious because it detects some code in the packed executable which unpacks other code into memory and runs it from there (which I can see could be seen as a potential threat especially in the case the antivirus software is incapable of unpacking the code itself and of analyzing that new unpacked code instead).

I didn't want to completely center the picture on the "top" but I did eventually find it beneficial to pan it just a little bit (and I made it "widescreen" since this will be landscape and I didn't think about my canvas size when making a new file).  I instead tried to balance out the picture by toning down the sunlight and it hitting the top.



I want to start making the on-paper version of this soon, though.  I'll apply any future suggestions in an improvised and on the fly manner.

Made this with Grafx2 + my mouse. Would like some critique, especially on the proportions & anatomy.



EDIT: I'm aware that the legs are too short & the top body is too long. I'd correct it, but I'm feeling too lazy right now.  :sigh:

Here's a crit: When trying to learn the basics, use tools that are more effective than 'a bar of soap'.
Not to put too fine a point on it, if you are trying to learn basics like proportion and anatomy, you ought to be working with tools that let you draw effectively and quickly, so you can make, spot, and fix mistakes rapidly. If those tools != a tablet + paint program, then it's pencil and paper. A mouse, quite simply, is not a drawing tool.
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.
